According to the year carved in the façade’s cartouches, this eclectic castle was built in 1891 for Octave Foncin, notary public.
This beautiful square building, built with finely hewn limestone blocks, bricks and bluestone, is flanked by a polygonal tower on the left and by an exquisite cast iron veranda on the right.
Two brick and limestone outbuildings complete the property.
This completely restored residence, which is typical of the urban architecture of the second half of the 19th century, is now occupied by the Justice of the Peace Court. Behind the property, the City of Virton has laid out a very nice public park where one can discover several remarkable trees.
